Meyer Tells Mellon Roads Are
Handling Grain With Re- 1
markable Facility.
The wheat crop this \ear will return
to the American growers about one bil
lion dollars in cash at country points.
Managing Director Meyer of the War
Finance Corporation told Secretary Mel
lon today. His statement was on the
basis of an investigation in the wheat
t reducing areas.
In a memorandum to the Treasury
head Mr. Meyer declared also that rail
road transportation was handling the
crop in a manner “almost without prec
"in view of I lie unusually rapid flow
of wheat to market.” the memorandum
said, “I have had an informal investiga
tion made in the West of the adequacy
of tlie machinery for handling the mar
keting of the crop. I am glad to be able
to say that the reports are most op
timistie and that, in fact, the railroad
transportation seems to be adequate to
the task, and practically no substantial
car shortages are reported.
"Un the contrary, railroad efficiency
In moving the crop is almost without
precedent. Adequate finaheial sup
port is being provided ail along the
line. A remarkably satisfactory ex
port demand is being taken care of by
lull and adequate supply of ocean
tonnage to move the surplus to ex
port markets with all possible
prompt ness.
"It is a matter of great satisfaction
that tin's year’s great wheat crop,
grown as it was on a 10 per cent
smaller .outage than last year's, is
bringing the farmer a billion dollars
cash at country points."

between the guards and the depart
ment, the guards have purchased
their own uniforms, through a job
lot contract price obtained by the
department, and now present a much
neater, snappier, and more official ap
pearance to all visitors, and workers.
Although the Treasury Is not visit
ed by as many persons as many other
public buildings, there being very few
exhibits there. It has become evident
alre-.dy, that the business of handling
strangers who enter the structure
has been greatly facilitated. Hoards
of the State. War and Navy lluildings
organization, which handle most of
the departmental buildings down
town, have been purchasing their
own uniforms for years.
There was objections on the part
of some of the men to having to pur
chase their own suits, but for the
most part there was ready co-opera
tion. Many favorable comments have
been passed on the improved appear
ance of the guard.
